MY BYRON BAY RIOT RETURNS!!

The MY BYRON BAY RIOT Party returns to THE GREAT NORTHERN on Saturday 25th May with a stellar lineup of some of our favourite bands on the independent music scene right now and we totally believe that you need to discover them all.

To open proceedings are a brand new Sydney band THE RUMOURS. We think these guys are doing something kinda left of field to what’s out there right now and it is unique and special. This two piece (drums, guitar and tails told with a husky attitude) are super stoked to be heading north and we hope you can all make it down early to catch them get everyone’s feet dancin!

If Janis Joplin formed a band that was loosely based one the modern 2 piece format in 2013 then THE DARK HAWKS would be it. We’re not really sure how we met these guys (pretty sure a big hangover was involved), but all we can say is this, THE DARK HAWKS FUCKIN ROCK! GO AND SEE THEM!

It’s common knowledge to all now that we love BEC AND BEN! A two piece romantic punk rock monster that give life to a simple format to create some amazing pop rockin gems. Now with the addition of a new bass player member these guys are surely going to get the Byron Bay party started just like we all know they can.

TSUN are a new band on the Byron Bay scene, their music resembles a soulful walk into the valley to lose your mind kinda trip. Definitely a unique fresh take on the psychedelic vibrations happening of late. These guys are definitely worth checking out and we totally know that they will bring the house down as headliners of this amazing lineup.

We can’t wait to see you again Byron Bay!

Good times!

MY BYRON BAY RIOT /// OUR MONTHLY PARTY LAUNCHES FOR 2013

THE GREAT NORTHERN in Byron Bay is hands down our favourite live venue in all of Australia. Sorry everyone out there, but it’s a fact. To us the Great Northern is the Holy Grail of live venues. It has a mega sound system, the room can hold a massive amount of people and the punters in Byron Bay, they really know how to party when it comes to supporting touring bands. As an audience the Byron Bay folk are always willing to give unknown bands a chance and this to us is rad.

After putting on many tours and shows at the Great Northern over the years, we were lucky enough to receive an invitation to put on a monthly party and of course we said yes please and thank you.

So to kick things off our 2013 launch show will feature Sydney heavyweights, FAIT ACCOMPLI who will be heading North alongside two bands who are both getting great exposure at the moment, THE CHITTICKS and THE JONES RIVAL. The local love will come from new Byron Bay favourites PRO VITA.

Our April and May shows are already filling up with great lineups and we invite all talented bands to get in touch if you are serious about getting your music out there. email: mysydneyriot@gmail.com

As you all know our whole mission is to expose the wide range of independent bands that we love to better audiences in better venues, so this opportunity is so awesome we just want touch the sky!

If you’ve been to our past shows, you know it’s going to be a RIOT! See you at the show BYRON BAY!

MEDIA RELEASE: THE FREE PUSSY RIOT PARTY COMES TO BYRON BAY

Politics seems to be the current language of choice for many creative groups lately. Sydney’s My Sydney Riot have been getting behind a lot of causes to date and very recently they have been engaged with the Free Pussy Riot worldwide movement. After releasing a 20 track music compilation, a drum event in Taylor Square and a packed out event at Flinders Hotel in Sydney a few weeks back, My Sydney Riot decided to bring the Free Pussy Riot party to the Great Northern, Byron Bay, one of the most exciting live venues in Australia.

On Saturday 6th October a special lineup of independent bands will come together for one night only; Fait Accompli (Syd), Pirates Alive (Gold Coast), Mylee and the Milkshakes (Syd), Bec and Ben (Syd) and locals The Deers.

Also featuring on the night will be the official debut screening of a short film by local Byron Bay label Tallow Gallery starring talented young up and coming surfer, Cloudy Rhodes. The film titled ‘Journey’ (preview above) sees Cloudy traverse through some epic landscapes from South Africa to Mozambique and Swaziland. This film ties in with the important message that women and all humans alike have every right to get out there and share their stories with the world, a right of passage which unfortunately still remains a rare concept in many societies, even in these modern times. This film is not to be missed.

So bring along your friends, dress colourful or bring a colourful balaclava and a smile and help us celebrate our right to freedom of speech, a right which wasn’t afforded to the three members of Russian punk band Pussy Riot, Yekaterina Samutsevich, Maria Alekhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova who are currently serving two years jail for speaking our against their government.

Come out and dance Byron! FREE PUSSY RIOT!
